ARCTURUS – An Update
Recently WW was contacted by Annie Bryce who along with her partner bought the 33’, 1952 McGeady launch – Arcturus a couple of months ago. Annie advised that they have put her on the hard and sanded her hull back which was in good condition, re-painted and anti-fouled Her topsides have been painted and they are addressing a few window issues. The engine has had a few minor repairs and the next stage is a full interior re-do. Annie commenced that Arcturus is a lovely launch and they are keeping her in the Sounds at Waikawa marina.
Annie would appreciate any information the WW readers may have on Arcturus, its a mystery how an Auckland boat ended up so far south.
